Russia is ready to receive Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky to discuss normalizing bilateral relations but if he intends to talk on Donbass issues, he should turn to the Contact Group on settling the situation in southeastern Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with radio stations on Friday, APA reports citing TASS.

"The Russian president [Vladimir Putin] has said: if Zelensky wants to discuss normalizing bilateral relations that are impaired by the unilateral actions of his regime - and we, of course, reacted to these actions - we are ready for this, no problem. Let him come to Moscow, Sochi, or St. Petersburg where they agree. But if he wants to discuss Donbass, he should turn to the Contact Group, which by decision of the Normandy format should consider all the issues of settlement directly between Kiev and Donetsk, Kiev and Lugansk," the Russian foreign minister pointed out.
